New Dories by Susan Horowitz at Maine Potters Market
- September 02, 2016
For the month of September, Maine Potters Market celebrates the return of Susan Horowitz’s popular Double Dip Dinghies.
Susan lives and works in Harpswell, which boasts 216 miles of shoreline—the longest of any town in Maine. Her studio looks out over dinghies, sail boats, working lobster boats, and even cruise ships making their way to and from Portland.
Dinghies are great for serving dips and snacks, but Susan says there is a use for a Dinghy in every room: Paper Clips & Rubber Bands in the office, Food & Water for your ocean loving kitty, Potpourri & Soap in the bath, Shells & Sea Glass and other treasures on the coffee table.
Glazed in the colors of the sea, these Dinghies will remind you of summer in Maine all year long. They’re a-dory-able!
ABOUT SUSAN HOROWITZ – Since 1970, Susan Horowitz of Ash Cove Pottery in Harpswell has been hooked on the magic of taking a lump of earth, "pulling" it into a cylinder and shaping it into a vessel on the potters wheel. She strives to make functional pots that work well and feel good to use. The clay itself inspires her forms, which change slightly with each throwing cycle, becoming clearer and bolder like a photo coming into focus. Her inscribed and brushwork decorations are based on the patterns left in the sand by the receding tide.
ABOUT MAINE POTTERS MARKET – Founded in 1978 by a group of potters who envisioned a cooperative market where they could sell their wares to the public and share their knowledge of pottery with customers, Maine Potters Market currently consists of fourteen Maine potters working in twelve studios throughout the state. The rich variety of handmade work available for sale keeps Maine Potters Market customers returning. September hours: 10 – 9 Friday & Saturday; 10-8 Thursday & Sunday; 10-7 Monday-Wednesday.
